Jihad of course has nothing to do with a holy war nor does it even have anything directly to do with religion, but has everything to do with struggling, striving and fighting for any honorable cause, including the beliefs, values and ideals of the Unites States of America, brought to us by our respected faiths.
And as Americans, some of our utmost striving and toughest fights are happening not only in our Department of Defense (Army, Navy, Air force, etc.), but in our Department of Homeland Security (National Guard, Coast Guard, Secret Service, etc.), and Justice department (FBI, DEA, ATF, etc.), and as Americans we must always elect, support, and keep accountable the most faithful, God-conscious person for President who will in turn appoint the most faithful, God-conscious people to her cabinet to lead our jihad, struggle, and fight against all the immoral, unethical criminals, both foreign and domestic, who would do us harm.
Below are a few examples of how all verses from the Quran pertaining to striving, fighting, and even war applies to all Americans no matter what our faith.
Verses from the Quran + commentary
“By those who coordinate themselves in departments, 37:1.
“And so are strong in repelling harm, 37:2
“And so proclaim the message, 37:3
“That Indeed your God is one. 37:4
“Lord of the heavens and of the earth and all between them, and Lord of every point at the rising of the Sun.” 37:5
Therefore, do not fall victim (By way of corrupt officials, agents, citizen demand, or any other criminality) to the Unbelievers (Those Muslims, Christians, Jews, and others who do not believe in goodness, morality and ethics), but jihad against them with the utmost effort (Strive and fight the wars on terrorism, drugs, corruption and all other war on crime.) 25:52
“Fight in the cause of God (Fight for our God-given, inalienable rights) those who fight you (Organized crime rings, terrorist, corrupt officials, and all other criminals) but do not transgress limits (Fight them within the confines of the national and international law), for God does not love lawbreakers (God does not love law-breakers on either side of the law). 2:190
“And slay them (destroy, extinguish their operations and there persons if necessary) wherever you catch them (On our homeland and even others’ sovereign states if they are incapable or unwilling). And drive them out from where they have driven you out (Where they ignore law and order), for oppression are worse than slaughter. But do not fight them at the Sacred Masjid (no place of worship regardless to religion), unless they attack you there, and if they attack you, slay them (Eliminate their organization my any just way necessary) . Such is the punishment of those who suppress belief (Belief in goodness, decency, and the rule of law). 2:191
“But if they cease (Always leave a diplomatic, peaceful path open to the enemy, and a path for normal relations), indeed Allah is Oft Forgiving, Mercifully Redeeming. 2:192
“And fight against them until there is no more oppression, and justice prevails, as does belief in God (Belief in Goodness). But if they cease, let there be no hostility to any except to those who practice oppression.” 2:193
